About HealthProm
HealthProm is a UK-based charity which works to ensure that vulnerable children have the best start in life. We focus on supporting the most vulnerable children in Eastern Europe, Central Asia and Afghanistan. We support them through strengthening families and communities, increasing access to health and social services, promoting education for all, and strengthening policy. We work together with partners to learn and innovate. Our current projects are in Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Afghanistan. We have recently started a new pilot project strengthening the capacity of professionals working with severely disabled children in Georgia.

Project Background
To improve support for children with disabilities in Tbilisi, Georgia, by providing child disability
training for parents and professionals responsible for their care.
Children with disabilities are amongst the most marginalised and vulnerable groups in the world. Georgia is no exception. Cultural stigma towards children with disabilities still persists, leaving their families and carers frequently isolated at home with limited access to services and opportunities. The sub-group of children with severe disabilities and their families represent a particularly vulnerable group in Georgia, as they tend to be even more limited to their homes and unable to access services they may be entitled to. This highly vulnerable group benefits significantly from home-based outreach services, which bring multi-disciplinary professionals to them to provide a range of support. First Step Georgia is currently implementing a comprehensive homebased service project in this capacity, and has reported that the professionals involved have expressed a need for additional training in key areas.
